No, please don’t, just don’t, OK?

Mine is a Wurly 200A (not a synth I know!!). Synth wise, I’m always quite tempted by a Moog of some
kind. (Sub 37)

I just love Wurly's too, but I’ve never come across one that didn’t have a fault of some kind, they can hum like crazy too.
A Moog, well, take your pick, they’re all good, Mini is a classic, but you may find yourself making all sorts of classic noises and not getting very far. I’ve just got a Grandmother, forget the price, it’s one of the best, it’s a great combination of the rich classic Moog sound, and really useful patch points, that enable you go really far out, it’s well worth checking out.
I know they’ve got the Matriarch now, but I'm not really into polyphonic Moog's, who needs more notes, when you’ve got such an interesting and rich tone to play with, it’s just a distraction.

There’s a chap just up the road from me who refurbs Rhodes & Wurlys. He’s always got a few available but as they are in about as good a condition as you could hope for, they are not cheap. I keep telling myself it would be a great investment but Mrs Guido doesn’t agree!!! I’ll have to make do with the one in my Nord Piano for a bit longer.

I’m very taken by the Moog Sub 37/Subsequent 37. Probably down to the knobs and lights!! I don’t like the colour scheme on the Grandmother and the Matriarch. Which obviously effects the sound :roll:

I know about the chap you’re talking about, but he’s so far away from me, not a good thing right now. And shipping something like an EP isn’t easy.
Colour scheme? I love my Grandmothers colours, it makes the sound so much fuller, brighter, radiant, dazzling, and generally much more technicolour to my ears...
